|Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Donut|
Chocolate Cake Donuts with Caramel Glaze
1 box Dark Chocolate Cake Mix
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2-3/4 cups Kraft caramel bits
1/3 cup milk
Yields approximately 18 large donuts (I used the mini donut pan and the large one and got 12 large and 12 mini)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix cake mix, milk, oil, nutmeg and eggs until well combined. *The result will be a super thick batter*
2. Lightly butter and flour your Donut pan. Pour batter into a ziploc bag, snip off the end and pipe batter into the donut pan. Fill them up about half way since they will plump up in the oven. *I was over zealous with the mini pan and got mutant mini donuts*
3. Place pan in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Test for doneness and flip donuts out on cooling rack.
1. Place caramel bits into a bowl with 1/3 cup milk and microwave for 20 second intervals, stirring until caramel is melted. *The thicker you want the caramel, the less milk you should add in. Keep in mind that the caramel sets into the donut as it sits. You can add in the milk as you microwave the caramel to have better control of the thickness.*
Take donuts and dip one side down in the caramel and add any additional toppings. For this batch I did several; coconut, chopped peanuts, salt and mini chocolate chips.
Try this ASAP! These donuts are so cute and they are healthier than their fried versions and to me tasted just as good the Old Fashion donut from Krispy Kreme.
